UIL Concert & Sight-Reading Contest
Last week the Danny Jones Choirs participated in UIL Concert & Sight-reading contest. This is our yearly state-mandated evaluation. We are thrilled to report that all four competing Danny Jones choirs earned the highest honors for their performances! They have brought four UIL Sweepstakes trophies back to Danny Jones to show for their hard work. This is no easy task! Ms. Myers and I couldn't be prouder of our students. Congratulations to our Varsity Girls choir, our Varsity Boys choir, our Intermediate Girls choir, and our Concert Girls choir.
Also a huge THANK YOU to Coaches Hayes and Ross for driving two of our choirs to their contest!!! And to all the track coaches for parting with a few of our shared girls in the Intermediate Girls choir so they could perform at UIL on Thursday evening. We have the BEST coaches at Danny Jones!!!
Enjoy these photos of some happy kiddos!

The Danny Jones Middle School Counseling are pleased to offer several small group counseling opportunities throughout the year to assist students to reach their full personal and academic potential. The groups are usually six to eight sessions meeting weekly/biweekly. The groups are typically closed ended groups, meaning that students are not added to existing groups (after the groups have begun) unless there are extreme extenuating circumstances and group dynamics allow for new members. All groups are confidential. Students are considered for group participation based on teacher/administrator recommendations and parent request.
Time and Duration
Groups will typically meet during the school day(unless before or after school works) for 4-6 sessions approximately 30 minutes.
Participation is voluntary and student confidentiality will be addressed and respected.
Possible Small groups:(created based on sign up. We prefer groups to be 5-6 people)
Managing Stress and Anxiety
Peer relations and social skills
Changing Families and Divorce
If you are interested in having your son/daughter participate in any group, please email one of our counselors.
